Twin Cities Wine Club Pinot Tasting

As Covid finally starts to let up getting back to the events we love is a priority. Our host went all out and provided wonderful food and a great space for our event. Please email me if you are interested in these smaller, higher end events.

Here are the results of the event: CellarTracker! $50 plus Domestic Pinot Noir Tasting

    Very full bodied effort with Bing Cherries, smoke, orange zest, and floral notes. A little spritzy quality on the finish. Solid stuff and this will age. (91 pts.)
